Limited Edition Hero-U Collectibles
2012 Kickstarter Edition
Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is the first of a planned series of computer role-playing adventure games by the acclaimed game designers Corey and Lori Cole.
We received initial funding through a Kickstarter campaign in Fall 2012. We thanked our most generous backers by sending them unique collectible items such as plush toys, t-shirts, and baseball caps.
We have a small number of extra items remaining after fulfilling all of the reward premiums. To support the continuing development of Hero-U, we are selling these items while supplies last.
This is your chance to own a rare piece of video game history and to help us create new games for intelligent players.
The Meep is the mascot of Hero-U. Meeps are odd furry creatures that are very strong, but have an innocent attitude towards the world. Lori and Corey originally developed Meeps for their paper role-playing campaign, then gave them a cameo appearance in their first computer game, Hero's Quest: So You Want to Be a Hero.
The toy is a custom design by Lori Cole and our art director, Terry Robinson, and manufactured by Shinedown Productions. Covered with blue fur, the Meep toy stands about 8" tall. We only ordered 1,000 Blue Meeps, so you can be one of the few people in the world to own one of these unique toys.
Hero-U: "Rogue's Last Stand" T-Shirt
The "Rogue's Last Stand" t-shirt is based on a design by artist Scott Flanders. Armed only with a pair of daggers and his natural optimism, the Rogue stands alone upon a hill as shadowy monsters converge on him. Will he survive? That is up to you, but the high-quality all-cotton shirt should stand up to a large number of wearings and washings as long as you avoid fighting mythical monsters in it.
The shirts are black with a white design and red highlighting on the front along with the Hero-U logo. They have the words "Rogue to Redemption" in white across the shoulders in the back.
We printed only 300 t-shirts and have about 50 left. After that, we will not reprint this design.
The Rogue to Redemption baseball caps are bright red with embroidered gold lettering and a blue meep. They're just the thing to protect you from the sun while you cheer on the Mighty Meeps of Hero-U. Or better yet, while you cheer on the Hero-U development team.
The Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption baseball caps are perfect for exploring, attending conventions, taking your dogs for a walk, and even for playing computer games. They are cute and unique – especially so since we only have about 20 of them left.
Hero-U: Key Chain
I proudly sport two of the Hero-U key tags on some of my keys. The tag is about 2-1/4" x 1-3/4" and covered with clear acrylic. One side has the Hero-U logo and the words Rogue to Redemption. The other side has an original Lori Cole "Thumbs-Up Meep" image and the words "Team Meep". It is cuter than you can possibly imagine and will help keep your keys safe from Rogues and marauding Meeps.
